Charlie Sheen Was Coked Out of His Mind During Two and a Half Men
Posted by Adam
CHARLIE Sheen was taking too much cocaine to work when filming Two and a Half Men.
Production on the sitcom was stopped after 16 episodes of its eighth series earlier this year because of the actor’s erratic behavior, and the series’ co-creator, Chuck Lorre, said he had no choice but to take drastic action out of concern for the star.
“You can’t do that much cocaine and work,” Chuck told TV Guide. “I didn’t want to be writing a sitcom while my friend died. Or worse, hurt someone else.
“We couldn’t be complacent. There was a tragedy unfolding right in front of us. There was violence and blackouts. On a certain level, if you’re looking the other way, you’re responsible.
“It was falling apart. It was heartbreaking to be around here then.”
Charlie left the show in February, launching a number of rants against Chuck, although he has now apologized, and been replaced on the show by Ashton Kutcher.
